God’s Children, Flip Book: This is a book of Children Poems I wrote and was illustrated by my daughter, Dahlia. The book consists of Sonnets, Hymns, Villanelles, Ballads, (Heroic) Couplets, Epigrams, Heterometric Rhymes, Odes, Biblical Free Verse, and other Forms of poetry, including ranges of prosody. It is appropriate for all ages.
It is mostly rhyming poetry and Christian based. Surely, I have not taken my verse to the Pulpit. Instead, I have composed contemporary poetry written for children with the message and fibers of Christian faith with its joy, kindness, peace and love with one’s self and others.
When you click on the link and flip through the pages, you may have to wait a minute for the images to upload. (Depending on your internet connection.) I hope you enjoy the book and I hope it inspires some of our children to enact on their own creative endeavors. It brought me great joy working with my daughter creating this book and I am super proud of her. The book was written for my daughter, and I also hope that every child knows how precious and sacred they are.
To follow nature we hold our child’s hand to God’s door. When this all matures with the weeping willow and the joy in heart flowers we brush the Yellow Poplar to find the green showing
its vastness. From the beginning with the sprouts in the greenhouse to lovelit orchards: this life is grace. The sun dances around the moon as if dancing the movement of time. It is here, I say to my child, Amen.
This is a Sonnet of mine, which I would love to see in my book project, God’s Children.
I want to be your flute for your joy’s tune I want to be a piano for your loving symphony I want to be a drum for your energy’s vibration I want to sing for your words in hope I want to be a choir to be in harmony with your strength I want to be the audience so heaven echoes I want to clap to have our hands together
The dandelion fairy is perhaps the buzziest of the bunch, weaving between bumble bees and dragonflies, yellow misting lawns with hope. Her bright flowers with petals of divine light.
A wing caught in joy, the mother and child pick dandelions, morning moving to their fingertips as the fairy flutters on with nature on their toes.
Drawing by Spectacular Dahlia!
This is the anticipated layout of our book, which I am so, so, so (!) excited about! With respect to my daughter’s labored artwork with many drafts for each one fairy, I believe this is a fair glimpse at our book proposal. I am so proud of my daughter’s art, I couldn’t be happier.
This book is intended to show awareness around Childrens’ various extraordinary ways, talents and unique way. My daughter’s goal of drawing multiple fairies and different attributes is so readers can understand that all children are gifts, magic and marvelous, in addition to having their own individuality.
Make a Gift for our Book
My daughter, Dahlia, will be contributing her precious illustrations for my Children's Book set to print in 2020. My daughter will be adding her 30 highly detailed illustrations for my 30 poems, to make a 60 page book (our goal)!! This is just a glimpse at some of her illustrations.
I am hoping for participants so we can print this book . I hope to print these illustrations in color format and my poems in black and white for a hard cover book and the printing cost's are a bit staggering for color images AND a hard cover book.
You the Participant: The first few pages of the book will be designated for the names of those who made gifts.
In the end, I think those who gave will be happy to know they were a part of it all. Thank you for considering to make a gift for our Children's Book!
If you'd like your name to be listed at the top of the page for giving gifts, I added another generous gift amount.
